My friend swears by it, it's his favorite beer.
This is a very beautiful beer. It has a reddish brown color to it. A very nice head that lasts quite a while and also very nice lacing. Probably the prettiest beer I've seen.
Smells fruity, nutty and of roasted malts.
The first thing I notice is the taste of caramel and roasted malts. It has a light body. A fruity and nutty taste to it. It left me with an crisp, clean aftertaste. The downside of this beer is that almost every bottle I've had has been a little skunky. Newcastle needs to start using brown bottles, at least for the beer they export.
It's a very smooth beer. Pretty watery, lacks thickness. Medium carbonation. Very drinkable though.
It's alright. I think it's pretty mediocre for a brown ale. I prefer New Glarus Fat Squirrel over it.
